2015 Anime Villains Tournament, The Sinister Sixteen, Match 2
A tournament vet up against the first timer that's been wreaking havoc and sending much bigger names packing…
Darcia The Third from Wolf's Rain vs. Junko Enoshima from Danganronpa: The Animation
Totes Junko. Junko is love, Junko is life.
As always, reasons why she is perfect are in the spoilers.
! 1. In terms of personality, she's more or less a female Joker.
! 2. To say she loves despair is an understatement. Her obsession with spreading despair to the whole world is what motivates her to do what she does. Even if it means killing the few people she genuinely loves, she'll gladly do so if it means giving herself despair as well. She herself said it best.
! Junko: "For me, despair is not a goal, or a set of principles, a lifestyle, or even an instinct. It's what defines me as Junko Enoshima."
! 3. Highly charismatic, and is easily able to manipulate others into joining by poking and preying on their emotions, weaknesses, and insecurities, effectively brainwashing them so thoroughly that
! >! they have to be forcibly brainwashed for Junko's grip on their psyches to loosen.
! 4. She erases the memories of her classmates (so instead of being very close friends, they think they're complete strangers), has them participate in a killing game and broadcasts it to everywhere on Earth, to convince the rest if the world that her ideology is the best ideology. She doesn't even force her classmates to kill each other, but instead provides them with various motives to give them a little push. And now the big one…
! 5. Through a chain reaction that would take me much longer to explain, she manages to plunge the world into a absolute state of chaos, anarchy, and despair, where war and murder are about as common as breathing. That's right, in other words, SHE SUCCESSFULLY ENDED THE WORLD. The aforementioned killing game was supposed to serve as the final nail in the coffin, used to ensure that anyone on Earth who hadn't given in to despair by the time the series starts, did.
! 6. Even after the 6 survivors of the killing game refuse to give in, defeating her, and after she (rather gleefully) kills herself after her plans fail, her influence and the impact she had on mankind is still easily felt, since there are so many who would devote their entire existence to finishing what she started.
! 7. She has a smoking hot body. Yes.
! Her sister implies that something may have happened to her to turn her into the abnormality she ended up as, but Junko herself denies this, so it's hard to say.
! Either way, Junko is an absolutely incredible villain, and deserves to make it far.
My vote goes to Darcia the Third.
Riding the Despair Train until the whole world embraces Despair.
Sticking with Junko Enoshima.
I'll go with Darcia The Third.
Voting for Darcia.
Going with Darcia, especially since I'm a little suspect of Junko's win in the last round. As this tournament has gone, the early rounds usually maxed out at about 12 total votes, Her win over Chouji Suitengu had a total of 17 votes in her 9 to 8 victory. The highest total votes for a single match in this tournament. So I'm most definitely gonna keep my eye on this one.
Well, since Adachi's out, the only villain left in this that I'm definitely sticking with is Junko.
queen despair-sama-san-chan XD
Going with Darcia.
I vote for Darcia because of Steve Blum.
